TIPS & TECHNIQUES FOR AN EFFECTIVE JOB SEARCH (WHETHER ONE IS UNEMPLOYED OR NOT)

In this very challenging job market there is enormous competition for far fewer jobs than normally exist. Trolling the usual Internet job sites (Monster, Indeed, Hotjobs, etc.) is important but not enough. In this session you will learn tried and true techniques for jump starting and turbo charging your job search in ways that will help separate you from the competition.

* How to build and maintain a network
* How to penetrate a company to identify the hiring manager, the HR recruiter or both
* How to get your resume submitted through their employee referral system
* How to use your college or university alumni service more effectively
* How to market yourself with periodic emails to your expanding network
* The concept of reciprocity in networking
* Tapping into the hidden job market

This free workshop is led by Ron Weisinger, who has had a twenty-year human resources career in top tier pharmaceutical, life science, medical device, consumer products and specialty retail companies. Ron has an MS in Human Resources from Rutgers, an MA in Higher Education from Michigan State, a BA is Sociology from the University of Hartford and a post-graduate leadership coaching certification from Georgetown. Ron is also a member of the Town of Winchester Personnel Board and he recently established his own HR consulting practice.

This free program will be held at the Central Library (79 Highland Avenue) on Saturday, March 13th at 2:00 p.m.   It is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and all are welcome to attend.  For more information, call (617) 623-5000.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY STORIES WITH DORIA HUGHES

Storyteller Doria Hughes will be at the Central Library (79 Highland Avenue) with a special program of stories for St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, March 14th at 2:00 p.m.

Doria says, “Ever since I was a very small child, I have read and loved stories of every kind. Now, I delight in sharing them with children of all ages! Dragons, warriors, queens, tricksters, thunder gods, and animals of every variety - these are the creatures who inhabit the stories I tell. I am a big believer in sound effects: if life doesn't provide enough of them, then I will! Cows, turkeys, donkeys, giants, monkeys, babies, leprechauns.... you name it, I'll make it come to life!!”

This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library - we hope you can come!
